I started to sour in this show when they let go of Cynthia and Mel D but kept whiny Violeta. I found Mel D more genuine and funnier. Violeta, on the other hand, truly encapsulates the essence of a typical MEllennial: self absorbed and inane. Mel D could have been a better fit in the group bc she’s game to do almost anything, but they never realized her full potential.
And since Melissa’s absence, I found myself tuning in less and less. I even stopped listening to their daily podcasts coz I, frankly, cannot stand Violeta’s whining. She’s like empty calories. Ever since Violeta joined the morning show team, I’ve rolled my eyes at her vacuousness so many times I feared I must have momentarily dislocated my eyeballs.
Melissa was the reason I started listening to this morning show. Her humor is self deprecating at times, but she never compromised her self respect. And her being mathematically challenged is an adorable trait & something that connects her to others. That’s what Violeta lacks, she’s so self absorbed that she tries so hard to appear put together/perfect that she comes off as a hack. She also has this tendency to talk over others.
Tuning out for now & I’ve unsubscribed from the podcast until Melissa’s return... that is if she ever returns. Otherwise, my time is better spent on listening to other podcasts.
